We really loved staying at the Route 66 Hostel. We stayed 2 different nights - one on our way to Texas and then again on the way back. I preferred the Euro Room upstairs - #7. I was treated to a beautiful sunrise and hot air balloons practicing for the Albuquerque Hot Air Balloon Festival. Great room! We stayed in... More

A nice hostel in a great location for exploring Albuquerque, everything was close by. Atmosphere was pretty chilled, comfortable rooms, met a few characters and some of the locals with great stories to tell. Would recommend if visiting this part of the world!!

Great little hostel, staff are super friendly and helpful with great local knowledge. The location is great for both downtown and old town. Free self help breakfast was a bonus. The single rooms vary in size but beds are comfortable. I will definitely be back!

A vintage building with characher and personality, not fancy but I prefer soul to sterile and posh. Old wood floors that creak just a little, bathroom fixtures not new, bunk beds in the dorm are basic but I slept well. The kitchen facilities are spread out in three rooms, refrigerator in dining room, coffee corner in living space and a... More

Recently I made the right choice and stayed three nights at the Route 66 Hostel in Albuquerque. What a welcoming staff! They were enthusiastic about their community sharing tips on sites and activities in the area. An interesting detail about the hostel is the wide variety of international people visiting, which makes for a most interesting experience. Breakfast, made by... More

Good value for the money. Really nice staff, cozy house but a bit toooo cold in the room. It was freeezing outside and our room was also a bit to cold. The kitchen and the common areas are big. I'm really happy they had eggs for breakfast and not just pancake as every hostel I've been to in US.

Thanks for the review and kind words, Jennie! Sorry about the heat. It's often a struggle with our historic building and even more historic central heating system to keep temperatures comfortable for all. We hope you'll come and visit again! More

Got there and was greeted by friendly staff and a pretty girl that understood my geeky magic shirt , totally chilled place, clean and easy to park outside. Close enough to town to walk to recommended bars , tiki bar especially good.

We stayed in private room 9 (jokingly referred to as the presidential suite), it and the whole house are so charming with a quilted bedspread and pictures of old ships in the upper hallway. Felt like staying in an old ramshackle house, which it is, so obviously sinks/taps are old but it all felt clean and charming to us. Some... More

We were running really late driving from Vegas and we had no accommodation planned for the evening. We called the guys here and spoke to Ryan, and he agreed to stay back late for us to check in. We thought this was great but what really took the cake was when we crossed the border into NM, we didn't realize... More
